Answer

Recurrent infections are common in sexually active patients. One study found that 17% of sexually active patients with T vaginalis infection were reinfected at 3-month follow-up. [49] Multiple randomized trials have found that this rate of reinfection can be significantly reduced through expedited partner therapy. [50, 51]
